If I can go for the same power, but cheaper I'd like to do that. I would like good quality as well.

I would like to try and go for something around 2k if I can get some good quality and power around there. I can go over, but I would like to stay close to that if possible.

Alright, so what I posted above is too much power? The whole reason I'm upgrading is to greatly enhance what I have right now, I'm basically taking the Shaker 1000 out because I'm replacing the head unit and new subs in the trunk. But then there is still those two 10's in the front doors. I basically am just looking for someone to give me a good setup because I am going to get it all custom fit into my trunk once I get everything picked out.

Ebay search "Iraggi" find some high output alt. for cheap. 300 or so for a 200-300A , subs.. 2 FI Q's and 2 Kicker Kx1200 (about 600 for 2..ebay) and a deepcycle or 2... 100-400 depending on brands...

Alt = 300-400
Subs= 518$
Amps= 600$
Wiring\Box = 200-300$
Batterys = 100-400

Thats still between 2-3K but it would be a pretty badass setup... should blow away that JL setup u mentioned atleast

Okay, and J B, if a better alternator will greatly enhance my system, I'll be buying one of those as well.

Don't even know what alternators are though...

I'm looking for someone who can give me a perfect suggestion on a great system that will fit my Stang. I know close to nothing about car audio, so explaining things would greatly be appreciated.

An alternator is basically a belt driven generator that produces alternating current and powers all of your electrical demands, and also keeps your battery charged.

first off, stay away from most mainstream brands (JL,alpine,rockford) when it comes to subs, amps are another story. its fukking overpriced, and most underground car audio is much better. second to run alot of power you MUST have a HO alternator, its a neccessity, no exceptions. lets get to your setup bud


HO alternator $350 (search your cars make and model on the irragi store within ebay, def. the best place for quality alt.)

2 12" Fi Q's $500

massive audio P3000.1 $470

knukonceptz 0 ga kit $70

kenwood excelon X790 HU $200

15 ft 0 GA kollusus kable from knukonceptz for the big 3 wiring. $65

Infinity reference comps $100

infinity refernce comps $100

8 ga amp kit $40

TCAB box from mark potts $200 ?? maybe more idk his prices but hes the best

look around 2 grand, and that setup would sound great

Well with what i suggested, you would want dual 2ohm voice coils to run each sub at 1ohm. It should bang HARD and NICE, and the alt really wont help to much if you dont have the extra batterys to produce the current you need, the alt just basically charges it back up and lets you run some of the load without pulling from the battery. For each 1000Watts RMS the general rule is get a battery, depending on what batterys you get of course.. If you go with a good battery you could prolly get away with 2-3Krms on a good high output alt.

here are some very good underground car audio brands, research their products excellent stuff.

sundown audio
massive audio (fairly mainstream, but very good)
Fi car audio
RE
Digital Designs
Ascendant Audio
Pierce Audio Products

thats not all but a good start

So trey questions on your setup:

For the alt, all of those ones you told me to look at on ebay are HO right? And there isn't a 07 stang one. does the watts on them matter?

the massive audio 3000/1 will power all 4 of the subs (the two comps and the fi's?)

Do the component subwoofers go into the front doors where my current ones are?

And I want to find a way to get everything custom fit to my trunk so it looks all clean, what would be the best way to do that?

people are talking about battery, do I need one? no?

if your going to run over 2krms. you need.
1-2 batteries. I would do one hc1800 front/back
1 240amp alt, thats how big of a alt you need for the massive p3000.1 << Great amp, because I have one.

email them im sure they have a alt. for you. alot of those are compatible with different cars and such and different years...

I wouldnt run the comps with the same amp...
You would prolly want the subs in the rear doing the lower notes and the comps doing the higher notes... crossover freq.. and different speaker brands\imdependance shouldnt be mixed..
